Yep, that’s a 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr. homage in Macklemore’s music video
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
The Kid is back … sort of.
The future Hall of Famer appears in the Seattle-based rapper’s video — and the rapper appeared on his own baseball card earlier this year as a First Pitch celebrity in packs of 2015 Topps Series 1.
Griffey wins that battle of cardboard with his card worth $40, while Macklemore’s “rookie card” sells for $2 or less.
